Teacher Marguerite - Manatee Room
My name is Marguerite Burnside and I teach Kindergarten. This is my first teaching at Oasis Charter school. My students call me Teacher Margarita. I began teaching in 1993. I have taught Kindergarten, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, fourth grade and most recently taught Pre k for 8 year. I had a wonderful experience teaching each grade level, but my passion is Kindergarten. I received a BA in Liberal Arts, a Multiple Subjects Credential , and a Master's Degree in Reading from Chapman University. My husband and I live in Carmel and I have sweet 10 year old stepdaughter. My husband and I love to take our little dog, Peanut for walks on the beach. When I am not teaching I spend time with my mama and the rest of my family. I love to Zumba, read children's books, sing in the shower and go to plays. I am thrilled to be a part of Oasis Charter School's family.
